This is hands down the best Bang-for- the-buck car for the guy/gal who wants to have their sports car cake and eat family car cake too. It is fast and agile for a large car. Features like touchscreen navigation, performance brakes and V-8 power are great. Leather and power everything as well as a load of driver aids and multi- information data tools are awesome. Other things like the standard HUD and remote start are features no other car manufacturers can offer for anything near $30,000! There was no compromise when I traded in my 2-door 345 hp turbocharged sports car for this 4- door family car. 0-60 in 5.7 seconds, 150+ mph (governor defeated, factory halted at 140) Nuff said, go drive one!
HUD-Navigation interface, V-8 power and sound, brakes, interior room, climate system and trip comp. Hands- free phone. Outrunning cars I considered buying (Acura, Audi, Nissan) that were several thousands more! Paying $29,000 to drag $35,000+ cars with the same features down the highway! 3600 lb. package.
Get the carbon fiber interior trim offered from GM. With all the high tech gadgetry, GM dropped the ball on the HID headlights and auto dimming mirror. Needs to lose another inch off the ride height. Better quality rear speakers, the stock are weak and inadequate for the amped signal the receive.
